Trimester 1 and Trimester 2
With this double degree, you can tackle environmental issues with knowledge across both engineering and science. With specialist skills in the social, applied and natural sciences, you'll be well prepared to find solutions to pressing environmental issues.
With a strong practical focus, you'll develop skills in the planning, design, management, construction and maintenance of engineering projects as well as a solid foundation in biological, physical and social sciences and critical analysis.
This is your opportunity to make a real difference to the big environmental issues facing the planet, bringing a fresh perspective and proven skills to the challenges ahead.
From year one, you'll be learning from industry experts and like-minded teachers. Hands-on experience is key to this double degree, and in your final year you can enhance your knowledge through an industry-based project or placement.
You'll have several options available when you graduate as either an engineer or an environmental scientist. This degree could lead to a career in civil, environmental, mechanical or electrical engineering. Your environmental science degree will offer up rewarding careers such as an environmental officer, environmental consultant, wildlife biologist, conservation ecologist or environmental chemist.
Changes effective for students commencing from Trimester 2 2020 onwards:
Tailor your timetable - Even if you study full-time on-campus, you may still be able to customise your degree to suit your needs. From a range of tutorial times to online access to lectures and other course material, we're here to help you fit study in with your work and life commitments.
Students may be eligible to do an international field trip, organised by the academic staff. This may count towards a component of the degree. Visit Go Global Griffith for more information.

In Australia, professional accreditation of entry to practice engineering programs is the responsibility of Engineers Australia and is normally carried out on a five-yearly cycle. Griffith University underwent this review in August 2015.
Accreditation ensures academic institutions consistently meet national and international benchmarks and engineering graduates of an accredited program are assured membership with Engineers Australia at the relevant career grade and enjoy reciprocal privileges by equivalent professional bodies overseas.
Countries such as the United States of America, United Kingdom, Hong Kong (SAR), New Zealand, Canada, South Africa and others that are co-signatories to international agreements on joint recognition offer international recognition.
The Washington Accord, the Sydney Accord and the Dublin Accord recognise the substantial equivalence of accreditation systems and accredited programs across international boundaries at the Professional Engineer, Engineering Technologist and Engineering Associate levels respectively. Please refer to the International Engineering Alliance (IEA) website for more details.
Please see the Engineers Australia website for the most recent list of accredited programs.
Students completing the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) degree may be eligible to proceed to Higher Degree Research (HDR) study.
These fees are only applicable to domestic students who are not Commonwealth supported including:
